Beautifully flattering, and full of happy vibes, Dolly is the cardigan for dancing, dreaming and feeling fabulous.

She sings, she’s gorgeous, she’s amazing over dresses and skirts, and she’s the perfect layer to finish boots and trousers.

Knitted from the top down, so you can try her on as you go, Dolly uses slipped stitches to create her incredible colourful yoke. You’ll just work one colour per row! No complicated colourwork, just simple, easy knitting that’s suitable for nearly every level of knitter.

Inside the pattern you’ll find a fantastic swatch guide and tutorial links - play with colour and new techniques before you cast on!

The wide range of sizes, carefully positioned short rows, waist-shaping, and options for different body and sleeve lengths, make Dolly a great cardigan for everyone.

Choose a size that gives you room to move, or one that shows off your gorgeous shape.
